going to seattle for the first time next week with 3 teenagers any ideas that they would like
The plan is to fly into Portland or Seattle and fly out of the other city.
We will rent a car and want to definitely see the highlights that are most reasonable given our time constraints.
I've heard the Oregon coast is amazing. Also heard about the hiking in the gorge!
As for Washington - I know the winery Chateau St Michelle is nearby - that may be more doable.
My boyfriend has never been to Seattle so I want him to see the market etc.
But I would also love to see some of the whales and not sure if trying to squeeze in any of the islands is worth it or reasonable.
We are foodies and hope to experience the each city for atleast a day a half plus some excursions.
Any suggestions you can offer about routes to take - things to see and do and or a reasonable itinerary for 7 days is awesome. We don't want to come home exhausted but we also aren't afraid to pack a lot into a day and want some unique experiences that we can't have in other states!
Are there long lines? Are reservations needed? What about the restaurant - good food? reservations needed there, too? Thanks!
Just moved here and need to find a great stylist for my crazy hair? Yelp reviews look weird.
I am planning a trip to Seattle in June and would also like to plan a trip to the Washington Coast to see the Hoh Rainforest. Does anyone recommend anything else of interest along the way or places to stay? I was also wondering how many days I should spend at each place. It will be just myself and my girlfriend. Thanks in advance!
any one familiar with this beach and the surrounding area? Looking for some feedback before we commit to a few days renting a private home on the beach. are there grocery stores and conveniences nearby, what's the closest town?
Three days to spend at the coast. Planning to rent a condo or vacation home. Which area is better for quiet walks on the beach and some R&R.
We have 3 days to spend on the west coast of Washington before heading north of Seattle for a week. We're looking to rent a vacation home or condo with beach front property. What area isn't overpopulated and has good access. We like a peaceful quiet locale and plan to sit and enjoy the view and if the weather permits in early May, do some exploring along the coast line.

Where can I go to see the Kitty Hawk? I served aboard her during 1972 in Vietnam and haven't seen her since. I would like to get a look again after 43 years especially since I am in the area.
Is there anywhere around the Friday Harbor Ferry landing to store luggage while we explore before catching a later ferry to another island?
My GF and I will be visiting Port Angeles and we have the entire day of Oct 31st to explore. can you suggest any activities that can get us the most bang for the buck so to speak?

Am planning a day trip from Olympia to Ocean Shores on Sunday the 19th. I did locate an Interpretive Center and Museum at Ocean Shores. Am wondering if there are any interesting points of interest that are 'inexpensive or free' to see along the way. Thanks, Rose
Hi there! My husband and I will be spending about a week in Olympic National Park at the end of July/beginning of August. We are experienced car campers but would like to try to do at least a night or two in the backcountry this trip, so we're reading up and stocking up on backpacking essentials.
Our tentative plan is to drive first to the coast and spend a few nights beach camping (Mora/Rialto area, most likely), then drive inland for the remainder of our trip. We are thinking about parking at Graves Creek and spending a night there, then hiking in and spending at least a night or two backcountry two and from Enchanted Valley, or perhaps a bit beyond. To anyone who knows, does that sound like a good plan? Anything we might not know that we should? (We know about the ban on backcountry fires, and about bear canisters, etc.)
From there, we have two or three days before or after to play with. Any other campground recommendations we should definitely visit, if we'd like to see some of the park's great stuff but also avoid driving too much or trying to squeeze too much in? Should we keep the Quinalt area / Graves Creek as our home base, or should we venture around to other spots?
Also, I know that the frontcountry campsites are first-come first-serve. Any advice on how early you really have to get there, or what to do if a site is full?
Thanks for your help!!
Staying 6 nights, was thinking "2" in each of Lake Crescent Lodge, Quinault Lodge and 2 in SOl duc resort.
Coming from Seattle airport 9-23 Is this too much time at the resorts? Plan on doing alot of hiking.
Visiting Seattle end of the month. Want to bring my daughter for some really great crab legs. Would like a place locals would go if they were bringing family. I see a ton of places on Yelp, would really like something of a shack where we could just buy crab legs without actually having to sit down at a restaurant for a full meal. Looking forward to the feedback and recommendations!
We are from Portland, OR and are driving to Raymond, WA to visit family. We want to drive to the Hoh Rainforest for one day which would be about a 3 hour drive from Raymond. Are you able to see the Olympic Mountains from the Hoh Rainforest visitor center? If not, can you recommend an area that is not far away so we could see the Olympic Mountains? Hurricane ridge is too far for us because that would make it a far drive back to Portland. Thank You!
What parking garage should I use for parking during a 7-day cruise?
I was hoping to plan a trip to Seattle sometime in early June from Saturday to Sunday (or Monday) and was hoping to determine the best itinerary to be able to visit each of the places below:
Pike Place Market
Safeco Field (Sunday game 1pm)
What would be the ideal schedule to maximize my time?
I am making a brief (24 hour) visit to Seattle and would like to enjoy a traditional diner experience, both for dinner on a Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday. I am staying at the Roosevelt Hotel but am happy to walk or use public transport. I won't have a car on this trip. I really enjoy eating at such establishments and would appreciate any tips or suggestions.
